Geocache Description:

Zaklad je skrit v bližini cerkve Sv. Jakoba.

The cache is hidden near the church St. Jakob.


"Sveti Jakob" je visok 806 metrov in leži v Polhograjskem hribovju. Izrazit vrh s cerkvijo svetega Jakoba je viden že od dalec. Z vrha se nam v jasnih dneh odpre cudovit pogled na Sorško polje, Ljubljansko kotlino, Šmarno goro ter Karavanke in Julijske Alpe s Triglavom.
Podružnicna cerkev svetega Jakoba izhaja iz 17. stoletja, a je bila v potresu leta 1895 mocno poškodovana, zato njena današnja podoba izhaja iz leta 1898. Strop cerkvene ladje je raven, prezbiterij pa prekriva kupola. Na glavnem oltarju je niša s svetim Jakobom in še dvema svetnikoma.
"Sveti Jakob" je znan po maši za domovino, ki je opravljena na "Štefanov" dan, torej dan po Božicu, ko praznujemo dan samostojnosti in enotnosti. Na ta dan leta 1990 so se poslanci prvega demokraticno izvoljenega parlamenta in ministri prve slovenske vlade po slovesni razglasitvi rezultatov plebiscita za samostojno Slovenijo, zbrali prav na Svetem Jakobu.
Na Sveti Jakob vodi vec poti. Najenostavneje je, ce za izhodišce izberemo vas Topol (738 m). Avto lahko pustimo na parkirišcu ob šoli ali pa nekoliko višje, na parkirišcu pri gostilni "Na Vihri". Ali pa začnemo pohod z druge strani - s Tehovca.

"St. Jacob" is 806 m high peak in "Polhograjsko hribovje". The summit with the church on top can be seen from afar. On a clear day the summit offers a wonderful view of "Sorško polje"," Ljubljanska kotlina", "Šmarna gora", "Karavanke" and Julian Alps with Triglav.
Succursal church of St. Jacob dates from the 17th century but it was heavily damaged in earthquake in 1895. The present appearance results from the end of 19th century. The ceiling of the church nave is level and the presbytery is covered with a dome. In the niche of the main altar a statues of St. Jacob is placed together with two other saints.
"St. Jacob" is also known for its mass for the homeland, which is held on 26th December, a day after Christmas, when The Independence and Unity Day is celebrated in Slovenia. On this day in 1990, the first democratically elected members of Parliament and ministers of the first Slovenian government gathered at "St. Jacob" after the solemn declaration of the results of the plebiscite for an independent Slovenia.
There are many paths leading to "St. Jacob". The easiest way is to start from Topol (738 m). You can leave your car on a parking ground at school or a bit higher at Inn "Na Vihri". Or we can start from Tehovec.
